Two hospitals were put on the market. Memorial Hospital, at 806 Central Ave. SE just east of Downtown, was offered for sale at $4.6 million for 47,000 square feet on 2.27 acres. It remains unsold by its Albuquerque and Santa Fe owners, which include Oberstein Properties of Santa Fe. The hefty cost of redeveloping the 1920s-era building could be a reason it hasn't sold.

To avoid being deceived by the propagandas of the "sellers," it would be better to take some tips on how to buy land in a precautious manner.

First of all, do not hesitate to ask and satisfy all you doubts and queries about the terms and deals. If there are inconsistencies on his/her answers, then, he or she is not credible of your trust. Since trust is being tested here, it would be better if the person offering you the land have some proof or certificates that are authentically showing that he or she is really credible.

It wouldn't hurt to do some researching about the location's background and history yourself. Be really curious about the legality of the processes and the right price of the land you are to buy.
